Lamar Choir Booster Club Meeting - January 12, 2017

In attendance: Megan Starkey, Jessica Son, Nikki Griffin and Kim Placker

We discussed the items needed to get ready for Seussical next week. Choir is in charge of making the star board for the show. Ms. Starkey is taking head shots of each cast and crew member.  Ms. Starkey will purchase the items needed (large paper, double sided tape.)  We will need to make about 800 stars for people to purchase, write notes and place around picture of their choice. Nikki, Melissa and Kim will meet at 6 pm at the PAC on Tuesday evening to attach the photos to large heavy paper or cardstock. We need to find out which type of clips are needed to hang the pictures on the boards at the PAC.

We discussed setting up transportation since students need to get to the PAC right after school on Tuesday, then at 5 pm on Wed. and Thurs.  Ms. Starkey will set up a Google doc for parents to request and offer transportation.

Jessica will send a message in Charms to be sure parents know about the time changing to noon arrival for practice on Monday.

We still do not have a definite time/date/location for the cast party.  Ms. Starkey sent a message in Google Classroom asking who had expressed interest in hosting. Once a host is determined, the date and time will be set, but it will most likely be held the Friday after the show.

Nikki shared copies of the balance sheet and income statement and we discussed items related to the budget:

-Ms. Starkey finally received the FanCloth bill, so we were able to determine we made $2303 on this fundraiser.

-Nikki said we are still missing the check from Amy’s for $98, but received a check from Phil’s for $303. ---Parent Booster USA dues were paid over winter break.

-Ms. Starkey will attend the TMEA conference in Feb.  She will pay for her hotel, then provide the receipt for reimbursement.

-Ms. Starkey requested a check for the accompanist to be paid $150.

-We discussed ways to spend our funds.  Ms. Starkey suggested we provide more scholarships for the end of year trip and the committee agreed. Nikki suggested we purchase the items needed for performances (such as boas) instead of asking parents to do so.  Ms. Starkey has already started a list of needed items for the spring show.
